David Brown 885

Post by PoppyShan » Tue Jan 29, 2019 10:43 am

Hello All, I bought this beauty October of '18! She has 831.5 ORIGINAL hours. Every decal & sticker is on her, even the dealer sticker from where she was originally bought! She came with a bush hog, plow, disk, 3-point tool box/carrier, extra top link and stabilizer bars plus $300-$400 of log chains. 40 gallons of diesel fuel, extra parts for the bush hog and a full set of new filters. The original Owner's manual, receipts for repairs, parts, filters and service records are included.

I've been looking for an 885 for years, and the closest I'd found one was 150-200 miles away. I'd actually made an appointment to see one of them. I opened a website, and lo and behold, this tractor was 20 minutes North of me!

You probably can't tell, but I'm pretty daggone excited to own her!!

In November, I purchased a Case Model 55 loader. One of the very first quick-attach loaders produced. It was designed specifically for the 885.

Hello PoppyShan welcome to the forum. Your enthusiasm does show a little. Don’t worry about posting pics twice, the posting method takes a bit of getting used to, and anyhow we like pics on here.

Another thing, why did it post them sideways? How do you fix that?

Depends on where you live.
Poms always complain our pics are upside down.
My Fergy Wheels and tyres are off a 880.

Nice DB885 father has one, great gear range, and economical to run. I have heard hydraulics can be problematic, but I recon its down to users not cleaning or servicing the oil and filter regular enough. :thumbsup:
